Meet the Fuglies...

Postby nzkings » Wed Jan 09, 2013 10:17 pm

Anyone willing to hazard a guess on gender? I'm pretty sure my darling Pekin is actually a boy... Not very happy about that at all :( The Lavender Araucana x Turkey is too I'm pretty sure.... haven't posted Blue, but she is my avatar.... hasn't gone through the fuglies for some reason :)

Ha ha - that made me chuckle :lol: Don't ask me on the sex - shame if the pekin is a boy though :(

the pekin is the top left photo? young silver pencil I'm picking?
I'd hazard yes, but still keep your fingers crossed, his comb is red (telltale male sign) but they normally grow the wattles as well (rounded dangly bits under their chin) and 'he' doesn't yet
but the red comb does usually come first :(

I can't offer any help either - but the photo top left - he/she has lovely colouring!

Not sure what the colouring is on the Pekin (yes, top left)... I must remember to ask Chicabo for what the parents were :)

Just for clarification.... The pekin is a boy, and we still don't know what to call his color, but his father is a frizzled crele rooster and mum could have been a buff columbian, a spangle, a crele or a partridge hen. :D
